I couldn't believe how much time I saved once Squared Away organized my second grade classroom. Now I can spend more time with my 2 year old daughter!

Be Smart. Delegate.
By Dawn Roth

We have all heard (or made) the same excuses for not delegating tasks before. What you may not realize is that this skill can cut your workload in half, allowing you to focus energies on more pressing matters. Here's how:

Let go of these ideas.
  • I'm the only one who can do it right.
  • There's no one to delegate to.
  • I can't take the time to show them how.
  • None of these are valid reasons for shouldering it all yourself. Now decide what your core competencies are (mentally or written). Anything that does not support these essentials should be delegated.

    Possible tasks to be delegated:
  • Routine activities
  • Fact-finding
  • Data collection
  • Copying, printing, collating
  • Data entry
  • Deliveries
  • Accounting
  • Have a plan for who is going to do each task, a back up person and when the jobs are due for review.

    Invest time upfront to train others so you can reap the benefits in the long term. Alternately, ask others how they would do your task, you might find some shortcuts!

    Delegate your objectives and resist spelling out each procedure. Always ask, "What else do you need to get started?" Don't forget praise and feedback for a job well done.

    Find the time you never had through delegation. Then celebrate that you are getting more work done in less time.
